Choosing a primary school for your child is an important decision. You will want to know how your child will be looked after; how they will spend their day; what will they learn and how as individuals will they be encouraged to do everything to the best of their abilities.
We know if you entrust your child to our care that they will become part of a happy, nurturing and successful school.
So why choose Dunmow St Mary’s?

From 1st April 2022 applications for a mid-year transfer will be made directly to the school and not via Essex County Council. This will not affect applications for children entering Reception in 2023 which will continue to be handled by Essex.
If you are moving into the area and would like to arrange a tour please call the school on 01371 872340 and ask for Helen Bright, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be able to answer any admissions questions you may have.
You can apply to change your child’s school during the school year. This is called a mid-year admission. Click on the link to view our Mid-year application form.
Your child is not guaranteed a place at your preferred school. You should not remove your child from their school before you have received another offer. We recommend that you:
Speak to your child’s headteacher before applying to another school
Contact the schools you are interested in before making a decision to move house or submit an application.
If you are moving to a new house you need to provide proof of your new address with your application.
If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) you need to contact the Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) service using this link.
